thank goodness for pretty coats.


if you're in SF you know i'm not exaggerating when i say it's been cold here! it's been ten years since i've lived on the east coast and endured real winters, so i do admit i'm a little wimpy when it comes to the cold. but this is some chilly weather we're having. if you'll allow me to get a little shallow for a minute i'll admit i'm happy for the dipping temperatures because it justifies one of my latest purchases, this sweet coat from urban outfitters. i hate wearing layers and big heavy coats, but this one is just so adorable and i feel like i belong in some sort of magical forest when i wear it. Urban is having a pretty awesome sale on winter coats right now, all of them are $49. this one was originally $160, so i felt like quite the bargain shopper. of course my purchases weren't limited to just the coat.. that's how they always get you isn't it?

i got the coat in navy, love the red but i knew i just wouldn't wear it as much as the blue. and i have to say, the twiggy model pictured here really doesn't do it justice.

dang! i was downtown yesterday and didn't make it to urban. it is SERIOUSLY chilly and I am so tired of the one coat that still fits ... maybe I'll have to make a little trip to see if they have anything swingy that might fit me--thanks for the heads up on the sale! hope I'll get to see you in your cute coat!
